What is your criteria for taking on a patient?

I have three rules:

1. You must have a problem I can see.

2. It must be a problem that can be fixed surgically.

3. Realistic expectations are required. If perfection without scars is on your wish list, we must have a “come back to reality” conversation.

When all three combine, that equals a great result and a happy patient.

Why is Board Certification so important to patients?

Board Certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery assures patients that their plastic surgeon has received the highest level of training and has passed comprehensive examinations. Board Certification is a requirement for surgeons to have admitting privileges at a hospital. Maintaining this certification helps ensure your plastic surgeon continues their education throughout their career.

How often do you encounter “Botched” patients?

A truly “botched” patient is thankfully a rare occurrence. Surgical results are predictable to a point, but there are many factors that can affect the final result. This is why establishing expectations and patient communication are paramount both before and after the procedure.
